Stampin’ Up! Gather Together for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you.  My card features the Gather Together Stamp Set, Gathered Leaves Dies and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a color challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here are the colors we are using in our projects:

These colors reminded me of the deep rich tones of Fall.  And even though Fall is not “in the air” here in Georgia as yet, we know it’s coming – eventually.

To begin, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper to a panel of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper 1/4″ in from the right edge.  Then adhere to a panel of Cajun Craze card stock.  The completed layer is then adhered to the front of an Early Espresso card base using Liquid Glue

Stamp the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set with Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock – stamped off once first.  Then stamp the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set using Early Espresso ink over the the leaf image.  Cut out with a die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere to a mat cut from Pretty Peacock card stock with a die the next size up.  Trim off the right end of the label to “square it up” as shown.  Wrap a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack around the end of the label three times and secure ends to the back side with tape.  Adhere the label to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add some Pretty Peacock and Crumb Cake branches cut with dies from the Frosted Bouquet Dies to the label and the lower left front corner of the card using dabs of Liquid Glue.  The leaf is cut from Cajun Craze card stock (spritzed lightly with water first) with a die from the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Adhere with Glue Dots.  Finish with a double bow using Cajun Craze Linen Thread and natural Linen Thread.  Add some gold Metallic Pearls and it’s done!

Add the leaf image stamped with Crumb Cake ink, stamped off once first, to the center of a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  The sentiment is stamped with Early Espresso ink and then the panel is adhered to a Cajun Craze card stock mat before adhering to the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.
